Any Given Wednesday

P8060001 I originally planned to go check out Sonny Rollins at Summerstage last night, but ended up at Barbes instead to meet up with friends and check out some jazz of a totally different stripe, part of Bethany's Stochastic Wednesday series. Jim Black's Vegan Recipes featured Jim Black on drums, Andrew D'Angelo on bass clarinet, Peter Evans on horn, and Michael Fineberg on bass. From outside, it sounded like a stack of crates collapsing in a supply closet, but once inside, you couldn't help but be transfixed by the eerie textures and feral energy of these players - especially D'Angelo and Evans, who blew till they were red in the face. Like a desperate, terrifying shriek from hell.
